: jonah, this is a group that voted almost as a bloc for president obama a couple of times. what does it say that they don't, apparently, have the confidence in him or at least in his signature law? >> look, i think it's, in my opinion, it's a long time in coming. as i've been saying for a long time, he visited college campuses more often than a red bull delivery truck because he desperately needed the youth vote to get elected and make his presidency seem cool and all of that. and the real problem for him is, look, his numbers may go up among young people before the end of his presidency, but he's never going to get back that sort of cool image that he once had because it's very difficult to get that image back. that's something that once you've lost that aura of magic, you can't get it back. and that's going to be a real problem for him because that means he's going to have to deliver and not just used glorified rhetoric that people used to buy. once you're skeptical of someone, it's very hard to be a true believer again. jon: and wouldn't you agree, jonah, that this younger generat

not only how obama care will eventually be phased in or whether it will be phased in at all, but what i'm interested in as a market guy is we're talking about 1/6 of the economy. whether you're for it or against it or you believe it's going to work or not going to work, in the end it's 1/6 of the economy, we're the world's leading business channel and it's in our wheelhouse. but one thing that seems to be going on today in it can that is not getting a lot of air time that i find rather fascinating is that the house judiciary committee is holding hearings and they're holding hearings on something rather, i don't know, maybe call it esoteric, maybe call it extreme but let's get to the crux of the matter and i'll get there through an analogy. let's say when we saw at the end of last year that the payroll walked out in january and said basically, listen, i'm going to take a swath of those people whose taxes are going to go up on the payroll tax and i'm going to delay that for a year, would that fly? i don't know that it would fly. we have a constitution and checks and balances. but let's ge

" bugs playing healthcare.gov enrollment. if you listen to the obama administration, it's running fine, thank you very much. the paper reports if you signed up for a health care plan using the federal exchange there's a good chance you might not be actually enrolled. one third of the applications may contain errors that will prevent the applications from being processed. that's chaos. today the president begins a new push to highlight all that's good about obamacare. 2:30 eastern he speaks. time is money and headlines here they come. they're all tech related. and according to a new report we find out what the mystery google barges are for and that the barges will be retail locations to sell in market, google glass. three in total. travel up and down the east and west coast. on-line is king, cyber monday sales at amazon up 44% year over year, ebay up 32%. and big money on-line shopping. question, what happens to the malls now? apple makes a play on twitter, buying up a firm that analyzes tweets. how much? a cool $200 million. and ups says, it, too, is working on a drone delivery system.
income. that is the 80th percentile nationally. the obama administration which i worked 10 extended the higher education tax benefits for -- markedly and i think that is then a laudable accomplishment but it also increased the income level at which people can get an american opportunity tax credit formerly hope all the way up to $80,000 away from the 80th percentile to the 95th percentile. why are we providing tax benefits and that some $7 billion a year to folks in the top income quintile. why is it that mitt romney -- i have three, 529's but why can mitt romney get tax benefits attached to it when he is students need of pell grants? closer to an attack site but i think there are others in the committee's jurisdiction. >> that is an interesting concept and we may follow up with you. the other is financial incentives to borrowers that have ffel loans to get them to convert their debt to a direct loan on that basis. have you worked out specifics as to how you think that program would work? >> actually the department of education administered a small similar program that allowed borro
companies. they highlight the need to reform practices. after president obama told msnbc that he plans to propose curbs on the nsa to guard against snooping. >> facebook says to mind my business. >> what is the story here? >> there is tension between what the government is trying to get and forcing them to unveil or reveal some of what they have been doing. they are trying to hold back on releasing too much information. >> do they have my e-mails? >> i think that they do. >> madeleine albright says that they have been -- this has been going on for years. the french were listening to phone calls. this is not new. edward snowden has put this out there and everyone is panicked. >> they may think that there e- mails to eharmony --? >> sadly, they are not that interesting. page out is taking a of bill ackman's playbook. they have accused herbalife of being a pyramid's create -- scheme. they are approaching investors. they are projecting that they pulled their money from ackman's firm. they have lost up to $500 million. it is risky and he responsible. they win and and hired a firm to fight
